Some time we struggle while doing investigation over BigQuery cost analysis, during data auditing, any accidental query executions or mishandling of BigQuery best practices. We need a dashboard to investigate who has executed which query and what volume of data is been processed for each query executions.

Here is a solution which can help you to have a track of all queries which was executed in last ´N´days.


AND job_type = "QUERY"
ORDER BY total_bytes_processed DESC

If we have data like given below and we need to change it to JSON, then solution is given below.

Sample data:

"UA":"Mozilla/5.0 (khkjjljk; Intel Mac OS X 10_15_4) AppleWebKit/605.1.15 (KHTML, like Gecko) Version/13.1 Safari/605.1.15",
"date":"Date: Fri, 24 Jul 2020 08:27:47 GMT",
"respCacheCtl":"Cache-Control: no-cache, no-store, max-age=0, must-revalidate",

To get this converted to JSON we need to use following code over Python.

import json
dict_json_obj = json.loads(thatstring);
